Big sky is awesome, make sure you hit up Moonlight for a day if you can. Thete is pretty much no nightlife and depending on when in March you go, there is a chance for spring conditions or tons of snow...last year we got both.
Oh yeah! My brother goes to Big Sky all the time and loves it. If I'm not mistaken, I think its one of the biggest resorts in the nation. They always have awesome snow, and more than enough room ride. So to answer your question, Yes its DEFINITELY worth your time and money
Big Sky is one of the best I've been to. No nightlife to speak of but LONG runs and any terrain you could think of. It's so big the only place you might find a crowd is around the lifts(and that probably won't happen, either). It seemed like I had entire runs to myself.
bridger bowl is just a different type of mountain. Its a non profit that is run by a community organisation, vs the resort feel of bigsky and moonlight. The terrain and lift layout at bridger focus on the steep technical riding, not long groomer highways.
what i love about bridger is how easy it is to get into challenging terrain, right off the lift, and if you are willing to hike a bit there is a lifetime of lines that will challenge the most experienced riders.
bigsky and moonlight have steep terrain off the tram, challenger, headwaters but lacks the diversity of lines and zones that bridger has. The wind is also much kinder to the snow at bridger, keeping most of the rocks covered.
At bridger the ridge terrain and slushmans lift require a beacon to access. This has a lot more to do with keeping people from getting over their head than snow safety. If you are interested message me and i'll point you in right direction as a lot of the good runs at bridger are not obvious.
We're thinking of going to Whistler (we've never been and it was a toss up between there or PC again) and not sure the best times to go? I've seen a couple websites that show the snow over the years but I know with Whistler being so close to the water you either get dumped on or tons...
Dear board fanatics,
My name is Brian and i am from the netherlands(EU). I currently have the option to rebook a trip with american airlines. I want to use this oppertunity to go the a ski-resort in amerika/canada, but given the fact that i am a dutchie and i have no clue where to or where to...
just got back from 6 days in jasna, slovakia. here's a basic rundown of the trip :
- flew out to poprad with wizzair, not much to say here (beware that a lot of the budget airlines have weird sports luggage weight limits; in this case 20kg for a snowboard bag vs most other airlines 23kg; also...
I'm wanting to get another trip in before the season is over and the only friend I can get to go with me just wants to drive over to New Mexico from DFW. I've only ever been to Breck the last four years so this is completely foreign territory for me.
What are the best NM spots for snowboarding...
